THS set to begin search for Marsh's successor

THOMASVILLE, Jan 12, 2013 (Thomasville Times-Enterprise - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) -- The search to replace Richie Marsh as Thomasville's football coach will begin Monday.

That was the messaged conveyed to the Times-Enterprise by Thomasville City Schools Superintendent Sabrina Boykins-Everett.

"Next week we will do our posting for the availability of the position. We will post on our local website, but we will also post on teachgeorgia.org the availability of the position. We are going to keep that posting open through next Friday at 4:30 p.m.," Everett said. "Then we're going to give ourselves four days following the Martin Luther King Holiday the opportunity to go through the applications, check references, make phone calls and contacts. Then we'll schedule interviews.

"Not knowing how many candidates to anticipate, I can't tell you how long that interview process will take because I have some things in my schedule that were already there that are non-negotiable to change, and so has principal (Todd) Mobley. We're working around our schedules to go ahead and fast-forward our chance to select a set of viable top candidates and then move forward with the selection process." Thomasville is searching for a head football coach for the first time since 2005 when Marsh was hired to replace Tommy Welch. In replacing Marsh, Everett will look for a coach who shares the same values and character that Marsh stood for during his eight years with the Bulldogs. Also, the next coach must have been successful in his prior endeavors.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
